Flora and greenery has always been a major part of our environment. It’s very sad to see that in urban areas, a substantial part of our green spaces have already disappeared and that there has been insufficient attention, for whatever reason, given to creating new green areas.
“Looking for better solutions to improve their green environment”
It is evident that flora brings a lot of positive effects to our living environment and this is clearly confirmed by research. More people are becoming aware of this and are now looking for better solutions to improve their green environment. This growing interest is focused on indoor, as well as outdoor possibilities, in locations where in the past it was not possible to create green elements.
One can just think of the ever growing cities around us, where the “spread of concrete” very often reduces green spaces. These cities are trying to be as compact as possible, but it should not be at the expense of the people who live there; who also require a pleasant and healthy environment.
We aim to maximise green areas in any space possible.
Fytocell® for Potting Soil
Will my plants become waterlogged?
No, Fytocell® always retains air space within its foam structure; preventing water-logging and the rotting of plant roots. This air space also reduces soil compaction in the root zone.
Is Fytocell® biodegradable and environmentally safe?
Yes, Fytocell® breaks down into carbon and nitrogen within the soil over a 20 year period. Due to its sterile, inert nature, Fytocell® will not change the chemical balance(pH) of your soil. Fytocell® is also perfectly safe to use in vegetable gardens.
How much Fytocell® do I need to use?
For best results, use 1 part Fytocell® to 2 parts soil or potting mix, and always mix thoroughly.
